Who has what it takes to become the Ultimate Beastmaster?
Netflix has revealed its latest original series. 'Ultimate Beatmaster' is an international competition show from Sylvester Stallone ('Creed,' 'Grudge Match') and producer Dave Broome ('The Biggest Loser,' 'Strong').
"The invitation to partner with Netflix and mega-producer Dave Broome on this revolutionary concept was an opportunity I couldn't resist," says producer Sylvester Stallone. "The world will watch in awe as amazing competitors from around the globe overcome grueling physical challenges - and in the process become champions and heroes. The course is unequaled in its daring creation and I am excited to be a part of it."
'Ultimate Beastmaster' is the first international competition series of its kind with six customized local versions featuring local languages, competitors and hosts from each competing country. Those countries are: U.S., Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany and Japan. All ten episodes of the series will be made available at the same moment globally on Netflix. The show will feature 108 competitors, 18 from each country, in total. Each hour-long episode will feature 12 competitors, two from each country, who will take their shot at running one of the most physically demanding obstacle courses ever devised, "The Beast." At the end of each episode, a 'Beastmaster' will be crowned and in the final episode of the season, the nine individual winners from each episode will compete against each other for the chance for one contestant to become the Ultimate Beastmaster.
An exact release date has not been announced yet. The show is being produced by 25/7 Productions and Dave Broome.
A current Netflix subscription starts at $10 for HD streaming and $12 for Ultra HD streaming.
